Here we are for Day 6 of my 12 Days of Christmas in July 2012 series. I made 3 little signs that are hung together.
They are simple and small but just right. I used 3 different cartridges to make today's project. They were Cricut Essentials which is one of the four cartridges installed on my Cricut Expression 2 machine, Lite Cherry Limeade and Simply Charmed. The base for the signs were cut at 3.25" and from pages 26 & 27. I chose to use the red polka dot paper as the frames. The 2 signs I cut for the Santas were turned on the sides in order to make the Santas fit within the frame.
I cut the Santas at 3" each with a black shadow from Simply Charmed. I added 2 red jewels on the bottom of the signs to match the larger jewel on the "Believe" sign. The Santas are popped up with pop dots to add some dimension.
I cut the letters for this sign from Lite Cherry Limeade at 1.5" and the whole word fit perfectly in the white section of this sign. I added a large red jewel on the dot for the "i".
For each of the signs I punched 2 small holes in the corners and strung 1/8" black satin ribbon in order to hang them. I debated hanging them all on one string but I liked the individual hangers better.
Signs (pg. 26 &27): 3.25"
Santas (p. 64): 3"
Red Jewels (2 sizes)
1/8" Black Satin Ribbon
Hope you enjoyed today's project. I'm half way done with this series and I can't believe how fast it is going. Come back tomorrow for another project.
Have a Magical Day!!
